Edwards Presbyterian Church (Edwards, MS) – Pastor

The Big Picture

Edwards Presbyterian Church (edwardspres.org) is a small but faithful PCA church seeking a Pastor who will preach the Word of God, shepherd the congregation, and equip the church for works of service.

The Church

Located in Edwards, Mississippi, Edwards Presbyterian Church was officially organized on November 24, 1869. For nearly 150 years, individuals and families have gathered here for worship, ministry, and fellowship. Our commitment is to see individuals and whole families strengthened in the knowledge, teaching, and application of Scripture in order that we might continually develop a stronger and deeper commitment to Jesus Christ.

The present sanctuary was built in 1872. The congregation met in school buildings which were located about sixty feet west of the present sanctuary until the sanctuary was completed. The sanctuary was also used by both the Baptist and Methodist congregations as they worked to build their own meeting houses.

The present sanctuary of Edwards Pres is one of the oldest in the area. It has by God’s grace been spared destruction twice. First, around 1890, it was seriously damaged by fire when a neighboring house burned. Some of the current pews still show where they were sanded down to remove charred areas. When the church was repaired, the present unusual wall covering was used. Second, in 1945, some of the stained glass windows in the sanctuary were blown out as a tornado swept through Edwards. The tornado created serious damage to many buildings in the community, but the church building remained intact.
